As announced this weekend, the Tasmanian Football Council (TFC) along with the Tasmanian Government and football leaders across the state, are uniting in a bid to grow grassroots football state-wide and support the push for Tasmania to be included in the AFL with the creation of the Football Tasmania Board.

The Football Tasmania Board will be an expansion of the TFC model and will become the peak organisation for football in Tasmania. All leagues will be invited to join, including the SFL, NTFA, NWFL, TSL, AFL Tasmania as well as the State Government.

As President of the Tasmanian Football Council and Southern Football League, Madeleine Ogilvie is the spokesperson to contact for all media enquiries relating to the TFC and Football Tasmania Board.
